.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, since a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain name extension was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the dot FR extension is among the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
